EXCLUSIVE: Akothee’s sister Cebbie Koks shares political ambitions

Elseba Awour, widely known as Cebbie Nyasego, the sister of renowned Kenyan singer Akothee, has set her sights on a new path – politics.

In a recent interview with Nairobi News, she disclosed her political ambitions and shed light on her journey towards achieving her goals.

Cebbie’s venture into politics began in 2022 when she received a nomination from the Jubilee Party for the Migori County Assembly (MCA) seat.

However, the nomination sparked criticism from some Kenyans who questioned her qualifications for the position.

Addressing the public’s concerns, Cebbie expressed that her passion for politics began at a young age, and it has been her long-standing dream to make a difference in the political landscape.

She revealed, “Yes, definitely, I am on the path to joining politics. I can’t say more, but I can say I am walking towards that. It is something that I have wanted to do from my young age days. When you look at my school’s thesis, it was all about politics. I also find myself in political spaces a lot. I am on the right path. The only thing that is standing between me and my success is time, I give it, time.”

When asked about her political role models, Cebbie declined to single out any specific figures.

Instead, she expressed admiration for numerous politicians and credited her mother as her primary role model in political matters.

Cebbie spoke highly of her mother’s integrity, noting she is inspired by her unwavering commitment to speaking her truth and standing by her beliefs, regardless of the outcomes.

“I look up to so many politicians. My mum is my role model in everything including political affiliation and doings because of her integrity. She speaks of what she believes in. She stands by her truth whether she fails on not. I would want to emulate her.”

Regarding her presence on social media, Cebbie shared a unique perspective.

While acknowledging the platform’s influence, she asserted that her life would remain complete even if she were to step away from social media.

She emphasized that her happiness does not solely rely on online interactions, and she prioritizes personal development and growth over social media validation.

“My life is complete. If today I shut social media, without worrying about my career in terms of my development, I would be perfectly okay, very happy. Because other than growing my developments, there is nothing really that I can draw from social media during hiccups. It is a culture of confessing, and your sin could be bigger than mine; therefore, I don’t need to crucify you,” Cebbie candidly expressed.
